Three Reasons the Southern Baptist Convention Needs to Split

It’s rare that a call for division in the Church is biblically necessary. The Bible calls for unity among the brethren, to be of one mind and of one accord. The Bible calls us to be united around the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ — which is the most important message in the world. We are to be salt and light in a world overwhelmed with darkness. However, there are certain things where a division in the Church actually becomes a defining of the Church.

Paul commands Churches and Christians to separate from false teachers — those who hold to and promote aberrant doctrines and teachings. He also commands us to purge those who persist in unrepentant sin from the ranks of our churches. There are at least three issues brewing in the Southern Baptist Convention that, if dealt with biblically, should ultimately lead to a separation and purge.

Feminism

One of the brewing controversies in the Southern Baptist Convention is the issue of feminism — namely, Egalitarianism. This is the doctrine that defies the biblical commandment for women to remain silent in the Church, not drawing attention to themselves, and not teaching or holding authority over men (1 Corinthians 14:34, 2 Timothy 2:12, etc). Several outspoken leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention are now advocating for female preachers and women in leadership roles, defying God’s design for genders. Beth Moore is the primary example of this, but there are others. You can read about these issues here.

Homosexuality

Another serious issue brewing in the Southern Baptist Convention is the issue of homosexuality — labeled by the Evangelical elites, “same-sex attraction.” The controversy is over the sin of same-sex attraction, and whether or not homosexuals should be counted as members in good standing, or even hold leadership roles in our churches. The issue has been brought to light by prominent outlets — namely the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission — who have promoted this notion through “gay Christian” ministries such as Living Out.

The crux is that many of these progressive leaders now believe that Christians should “soften” their stance against homosexuality and in many cases, fully accept them among the ranks of Churches. You can read about these issues here.

Social Justice

Finally, the longest standing and most notable issue facing the Southern Baptist Convention is that of the social justice movement. The idea is that it is the mission and focus of the Church to right the wrongs of social and economic inequality. Primarily, the movement advocates for an unbiblical view of man and sin and instead looks to secular ideology, such as Critical Theory (Marxism), for guidance.

Many of the advocates of this movement in the Southern Baptist Convention seek to impute guilt among entire people groups — in this case, white people — for ancestral sins. Further, they advocate for restitution based not on individual guilt and/or need, but based solely on the color of their skin. This, too, should be opposed as it does not seek biblical reconciliation among believers, but only seeks to cause division and tear down society. You can read more about these issues here.

While you point out in the article that Christ wants unity in the church, in the name of Jesus and his Word, I am calling you out for twisting words and scripture on the topic of homosexuality. Clearly, a person who is involved in an active homosexual lifestyle has rejected God’s commands and will not inherit eternal life. But where in the Bible does it call same-sex attraction a sin? If you are stating without evidence from the bible that a person who is born again and has same-sex attraction and does not act upon it is any less a… Read more »

Kurt Nelson, You have used a lot of words and are very dogmatic about your view. Your augment seems cogent. However, it is built on the false premise that you have to act out the sin to be guilty of it. Same sex attraction whether you act it out or not, IS a sin. First, it goes against the natural order of God's design (Romans 1:24-32). Second, our Lord said in Matthew 5:28 "that every one that looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his own heart." You do NOT have to… Read more »
